He continued to maintain his frequent speaking engagements and work on his commentary. On 21 June Henry was on a speaking tour around Chester and was returning to Hackney. While in route, he was thrown off his horse but denied injury and insisted on making it to Nantwich where he was scheduled to speak. His traveling companions noted a lack of energy. That evening he could no longer travel and stopped at the Queen's Aid House. On 22 June , he died of apoplexy. Henry's well-known six-volume Exposition of the Old and New Testaments —10 or Complete Commentary provides an exhaustive verse-by-verse study of the Bible, covering the whole of the Old Testament , and the Gospels and Acts in the New Testament.
Thirteen other non-conformist ministers finished the sixth volume of Romans through Revelation after Henry's death, partly based on notes taken by Henry's hearers. Henry's commentaries are primarily exegetical , dealing with the scripture text as presented, with his prime intention being explanation for practical and devotional purposes. Henry's Commentary identifies the " man of sin ", the focus of latter day apostasy, and the Antichrist as the papacy in his interpretation of 2 Thessalonians He lists three "blasphemous titles" which he states have been attached to the "bishops of Rome.
He is allowed by all competent judges, to have been a person of strong understanding, of various learning, of solid piety, and much experience in the ways of God. And his exposition is generally clear and intelligible, the thoughts being expressed in plain words: It is also found, agreeable to the tenor of scripture, and to the analogy of faith. It is frequently full, giving a sufficient explication of the passages which require explaining. It is in many parts deep, penetrating farther into the inspired writings than most other comments do.
It does not entertain us with vain speculations, but is practical throughout: and usually spiritual too teaching us how to worship God, not in form only, but in spirit and in truth. Several abbreviated editions of the Commentary were published in the twentieth century; more recently, Martin H. Perhaps his best-known quotation is about the relationship between men and women, from the story of the creation of Eve, in the Book of Genesis :. The woman was made of a rib out of the side of Adam; not made out of his head to rule over him, nor out of his feet to be trampled upon by him, but out of his side to be equal with him, under his arm to be protected, and near his heart to be beloved.
The author John Trapp wrote a similar statement in his commentary:. And he took one of his ribs.
The species of the bone is expressed to be a rib, a bone that might be best spared, because there are many of them: a bone of the side, not of the head; the wife must not usurp authority over her husband: nor yet of the foot; she is not a slave, but a fellow-helper. A bone, not of any anterior part; she is not praelata, preferred before the man: neither yet of any hinder part; she is not post-posita, set behind the man: but a bone of the side, of the middle and indifferent part, to show that she is a companion, and "the wife of thy covenant". A bone not far from his heart, to put him in mind of dilection and love to the woman.
A bone from the left side, as many think likely, d where the heart is, to teach that hearty love ought to be betwixt married couples. John Trapp Complete Commentary, Genesis . In , a memorial was erected in Chester to commemorate Henry.
